The show's {almost} over

The credits are rolling, the theme music is playing, the darkness ends, the exit signs are lit up...

Ok, well we aren't at the movies, but the sunflower show is coming to the end. I love how this picture evokes a sad vintage feeling that better times have existed.

The flowers are exhausted from the heat, lack of rain, and being gnarled by grasshoppers.

(This picture was taken a few weeks ago and the buds you see in the picture are now as sad as the big sunflower.)

  1. Love the vintage look also! Beautiful photo, Janice.

    I hope things are going well for you and Farmall man.

    Have a beautiful day!!


  2. Like the effects on this photo! Really cool!

  3. Boy, we are really feeling it here too!!!
    They were pretty while it lasted though!

  4. Awww, it's so sad when sun flowers start to fade away. They're always so pretty.
    Have you considered saving the seeds? Drying them for next planting season, or roasting them?
    Just wondering. And ya know, if you asked me that question I'd say I'm too lazy, but would've had good intentions in my mind. If that's your answer too, don't worry, I understand. :)

    Have a lovely day! xxxx~Kelsey
